BUT one silver had heat stroke and didn't make it... We had like 90 degree temps one morning by 9 am and darn near 80% humidity, and me being the dummie I was, I forgot to leave the top of the dog house ajar the night before, and I don't know why, cuz I always put in the spacer so there would be good air... Well, anyway... and water was in the coop, but I guess she couldn't get to it for come reason... Well, anyway, live and learn, and I learned the hard way to never be forgetfull. I have never had chickens until this year... Felt so bad, and I still do... Well, anyway, I got them from this lady, and I can not even remember her name. But thats all she does... Wyandottes. I am hoping to get more from her this year. They are just something aren't they.


Tulip city, Borculo, Zeeland.... I'm not familiar with those towns as a point of reference.  LOL  What state do you live in?

Sorry, I am in Holland Michigan. Good old Dutch town names. Its Tulip City, because Holland is in the top 10 for largest festivals in the states. And by tulips... I mean TULIPS EVERY WHERE! We have Veldheers Tulip farm, and it is acres and acres of every type of tulip. Colors are remarkable. We have 3 parades during the fest which lasts 8 days. Klompen dancers who do traditional dutch dances in wooden shoes and old dutch costumes... Its something else...

At the very least, wipe the poop off your feet before getting in the car.

Are you using artificial light?  They need 14 hours of light to stimulate laying.

Mine aren't laying yet either. However their wattles and combs are turning red now, and they are being paid attention too by my roos, so I am sure I should be soon. ALSO, they were all practicing the egg song tonight, and I went and stood and watched them to see if they were going to pop a squat, but nope... Just practicing singing. LOL.

And yes, she is a pretty girl. I can't believe you have snow... We had such a nice day here that I was able to clean both coops, and the garage floor. Was able to put the storm windows in on the under run of my big coop. They didn't know what to think of that. I had a bunch of old storm windows that I repurposed instead of buy plastic sheeting. HEHEEHEE. Works great.

We are using artificial light. They get light from 8 in the morning to 9 at night. And actually, she laid her first egg TODAY smile

Starting to get nice eggs from my Golden laced.  They were born in June.  Had snow 4-5 inches two weeks ago and it is close to seventy degrees today.  Like a beautiful May day. cool

I am thinking I want a GL roo. I'd have to build another coop then too, just so I can breed them pure. I wonder what they'd look like if I mixed a golden and a silver...
